About the Book
Nyla Witmore, artists/journalist, has taken a few of the best stories and sketches from her numerous art journals created on painting trips to Burgundy France. A charming book full of humor, wit, adventure and insight. More than just sketches, this book answers questions of why and how and artist chooses subject matter as well as observations of France that make the painting process come alive. Finished paintings based on sketches and resources complete are included at the end. A valuable resource for travelers and painters alike.
Since 1979 I have authored 4 books. In 1990. I have been represented by numerous fine arts galleries and am currently represented by "Gingerbread Square Gallery" (Key West, FLA), and "Tirage Art Gallery " (Pasadena, CA). As a professional fine artist since 1990, I have had one woman shows featuring watercolors in the early years and currently focusing on oil painting. I continue to travel, paint and produce personal journals and sketches of my travels. My book with blurb contains the best collection of stories from my travels to France.
